Urge Senators Toomey and Casey to Vote Yes on Voting Rights Legislation
The fight for voting rights has been a long and enduring battle. The Freedom to Vote Act is a transformative voting rights bill that will protect and expand the right to vote, decrease the influence of money in politics and curb partisan gerrymandering. This legislation will put power back into the hands of American voters by prioritizing voting access and participation, while also modernizing future elections to ensure a system that everyone can trust.
For months, the American people have been calling for national standards to protect our freedom to vote, ensure fair representation, and get big money out of politics. The introduction of the Freedom to Vote Act is proof that our voices have power in the halls of the US Senate. It’s again time to add your voice and speak out! The Freedom to Vote Act ensures that our democracy is protected and serves the American people. Your voice will continue the fight for this sweeping voting rights package.
In addition, the Senate introduced the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (JLVRAA), which will fully restore the Voting Rights Act (VRA) and ensure renewed oversight, accountability, and justice in our democracy. We must ensure that every voter is treated fairly at the ballot box and has equal access to vote.
Since the Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder rolled back key provisions of the VRA, the voting rights of millions have been threatened. These attacks have become more prevalent in the last few years, with the VRA being further comprised in the more recent Brnovich v. DNC.
We cannot stand for a democracy that enables such regressive and dangerous attacks, which disproportionately impact Black and brown voters. The new version of the JLVRAA will restore the VRA and put an end to discriminatory voting policies.
Contact Senators Toomey and Casey TODAY and tell them to vote yes on the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (JLVRAA) to return control of our government back where it belongs — into the hands of the people.
